Development of a tyre rolling noise prediction model based on measurement data

Topic and Goal of the Thesis

Due to increasing electrification, tyre-road noise is becoming more and more important. The acoustic masking of the combustion engine is missing and therefore the tyre-road noise becomes the dominant external noise in an ever wider speed range than before.

As part of an ongoing research project, the tyre is being investigated as a source of noise. Within this thesis a prediction model for tyre rolling noise should be developed and evaluated using already existing measurement data.

Working Points

  • Literature research on rolling noise models
  • Conception of an empirical model for tyre rolling noise
  • Development of this model using existing measurement data
  • Application & verification of this model


  • Good English and/ or German language skills
  • Reliability, commitment and enjoyment of working independently
  • Knowledge of acoustics is helpful (not a must)
  • Knowledge of Matlab is helpful (not a must)

Note: Please attach brief resume and grade summary.
